Bad Brain Game Studios

Free Your Brain!

There’s been a boom of new gaming studios recently, and some are seemingly jumping on the bandwagon of a buzzword enhanced quick buck.

Crypto this, Children’s NFT Casino that…They are games that don’t put the gamer central to the game. This recent flooding of new studios also means that top quality artists can be trapped in dead end jobs, and therefore more difficult to recruit.

Our traditionally animated film tells the story of group of jaded developers who reach breaking point in their job, and their brains go on a violent, yet comedic, rampage in an effort to be free from tyranny.

In collaboration with Bad Brain, the animated film was written, directed and produced at Seed, in the guise of an adult animated series you’d expect to watch on Adult Swim, or some dark, hidden corner of Netflix.

With thanks to Sean, Anthony, Kyle and Guillaume at Bad Brain for encouraging us to be this ridiculous, and to the super stellar line up of animators, artists and musicians- we all certainly freed our usual ‘ad- refined’ brains when we were putting this animated film together.

For technically similar projects like this animated film, take a look at Badoo and Fat Face.
